A word from Bourbon Street Bar & Grill
Bourbon Street Bar & Grille is inspired by everything that makes the Crescent City & Southern Louisiana great. It is our hope that the unique culture of New Orleans is transplanted right here to our home on Restaurant Row in the middle of NYC. Let the Good Times Roll!

    Tasty food in a New Orleans bar atmosphere. It's modest but good at what it does. Only complaint: disconnect between waitress and bus boy (we understood) meant it was tougher than it should have been to get water before meal and coffee after. But don't come here for the water or the coffee anyway.

    Booked for brunch on Mother's Day. Limited menu-my wife could not find anything she liked. Food average. Service slow. Took a while to get initially served and coffee refills. Waitress didn't come around for 15 minutes at a time even though restaurant was near empty. This restaurant is really a bar and that is what they should push.

    The Hostess was very friendly and our table was ready - ahead of time! The wait staff seated us quickly, and our refreshments and dinner were served promptly, but not rushed. Our waitress snapped a few photos upon request, made us feel quite welcome, and accommodated a few personal requests without fuss. We really enjoyed the outdoor seating, on a comfortable evening prior to attending a show. Dinner for two and a bottle of house champagne set me back far less than I had anticipated. Thanks, Bourbon Street! We will definitely return, and soon!

    I was told they didn't serve unsweetened iced tea but there it was on the menu. We ordered Cajun Flatbread and Shrimp Po Boys. The flatbread had a good taste but it was lukewarm and the flatbread for half was soggy. When the sandwiches came the bread was stale, there was virtually no mayonnaise on it and the bread to shrimp/filling ratio was far too skewed to bread. It was difficult to swallow. The fries were old. The best thing we had was the brownie dessert which could have been improved if it was served warm. Also, they are a little low on women's bathrooms but that's really no different than anywhere else. I would skip this place if I were you.

    The food was great we ordered a mix of everything. The Appetizer Combos, Buffalo (favorite), Honey and BBQ Jumbo wings, BBQ Calamari, Shrimp Po Boy, Our favorite drinks were the Hurricane and the Specialty Cocktail. Then just when we thought we couldn't have anymore fun the DJ started playing music and I had to get up and dance. It reminded us of the last time we were all in New Orleans. Well done folks!

    Went during happy hour before going to see a show nearby. I love the decor and the New Orleans vibe - definitely a little noisy, though, so might not be the best for a romantic, private evening. Their cocktails are phenomenal, and during happy hour are INCREDIBLY reasonable. Service was great. The food was good (not amazing), but the portions were very big and the price is great. I would definitely recommend the place again, especially for happy hour.

    We chose this place for a 'quick' but good meal before a play. We arrived at our reservation time, 1.5 hours before the play and were promptly seated. We informed the waitress we were going to see a play. That was the only promptness of the meal, as we had to wait nearly an hour for our food to arrive. Food was 'ok', with some dishes real nice, but others were average to poor. Didn't 't come close to meeting our expectations. Had to rush out to make the start of the play.

    We really enjoyed our brunch but the service was very slow and lacking. We had to ask for coffee several times and the answer was always "a fresh pot is brewing". The food was tasty but some entrees were served lukewarm and a substitution was made on another without a word from the waitress until she was asked. I have never been to a restaurant that served salads and egg dishes without some sort of bread to accompany the dish; in fact a breakfast type bread basket would definitely improve the brunch experience. The outdoor seating area was lovely and overall it was a good experience. I would go back again and hope for better service.

    Given the reviews of other diners, my expectations were low, but Bourbon Street was a very pleasant surprise. It goes without saying that you can get better Cajun food in New Orleans (although other reviewers felt the need to say it over and over). But you can't find a better value on Restaurant Row. For $28, I got a huge Caesar salad, a deliciously spicy plate of blackened catfish with addictively crunchy hush puppies, and a yummy slice of pecan pie, all served with a smile. You won't go wrong at Bourbon Street for a quick tasty dinner before a Broadway show. Warning: we sat upstairs to get away from the Happy Hour bar crowd, but it was extremely noisy.

    Bourbon Street is a good place to meet up with friends before or after a show. Conveniently located near the theatre district, it's a relaced place to get some drinks and casual pick food together. The Louisiana flair makes it a fun and a nice change from the ordinary fare in the area.

    I've been here twice. Once for drinks with coworkers and once for dinner. Drinks were great - the hurricane was amazing and when I'd finish, the server would be there immediately and I was never left with an empty drink For dinner, the service was great. I had the jambalaya, and it was waaay too salty. It was probably my fault for not sending it back immediately, but when I took the first bite, I thought I could at least get through the rest, but I could only eat half of it before I realized I couldn't finish. My friend had the beignets, and while they tasted good, it didn't taste like there was any chocolate dulce de leche (tasted like normal dulce de leche).

    Came here with a group of 6 other women to celebrate a friend's 40th birthday. Two of us arrived on time and we were greeted by three pleasant and friendly hostesses; we were allowed to wait in the Jack Daniel's lounge at the back while they held our table for a bit.. We arrived around 6:30, so we still had until 8pm to enjoy the fantastic happy hour specials. Can you say $5 hurricanes?!? And they were delicious, not watered down and not too strong. We didn't have a full meal, but we ordered a bunch of appetizers to share. The calamari, spinach & artichoke dip, and fried pickles were the highlights of the night for me. The total bill for 6 of us was about $160 (tip included), and we all left there feeling pretty nice! Overall, great night!

    Bourbon Street is a really cute restaurant, set to look like a typical New Orleans bistro, serving standard New Orleans fare. We ordered the gumbo and jumbalaya, and they were both delicious! The menu also includes items such as shrimp creole, crawfish, and po boys. The location is perfect if you're going to the theatre, and the prices are very reasonable (with an optional prix fixe menu that's a bargain). Also, there are big screen TVs all around for sports enthusiasts!

    This is our second time at Bourbon Street Bar and Grille and it was even better than it was the first time. We went pre-show and the service was so fast we actually had too much time from the end of our meal until our show... A nice problem to have. The food was fabulous... gumbo, asparagus, calamari with an out of this world sauce, hush puppies... very yummy and we can't wait till July for a return trip.

    Every year, we head to NYC in February for Toy Fair. We love the energy of the city, but all too often, the restaurants that we hit are over rated, over priced, and we leave unsatisfied. Bourbon Street is quite the opposite! Great food, reasonable prices, excellent atmosphere and great service. The staff is very attentive and friendly. The portions are large -- and they've nailed the bayou cajun flavors perfectly. Their happy hour (actually several hours!) let's you unwind without paying obscene prices for a beer or cocktail. Definitely an excellent overall experience in a fun atmosphere. We'll be back...

    This was the second valentines evening we had spent at the Bourbon Street Grille. The atmosphere is vibrant but warm although it can get fairly loud at times. We ate from the set menu which gave us the opportunity to try something we wouldn't necessarily have ordered and the price was good value for three courses. All the food we have eaten there has been very tasty, the Cajun Jambalaya and the blackened catfish were excellent. Even though the staff were very busy they were friendly and attenttive.

    My girlfriend and I come here often when we're in this part of town, and we've always enjoyed it. It's a great place to meet up with friends, grab dinner before a show, or even have a nice romantic evening (we sat in the atrium for a Valentine's prix-fixe -- they add an extra touch of class to the usual casual dining for special occasions). Don't expect the exact Cajun / Creole grub you'd get in Louisiana (why would you?), but expect quality and flavor. The pot pie could've used more seasoning, but this was a rare anomaly. Their brownie dessert is to die for. The recently simplified menu is a step forward overall, though we do miss some of the old cocktail lineup at happy hour -- hoping the over-featured "Eon" citrus mixer is a passing fad.

    My girlfriends and I have been loyal customers of Bourbons for the past 2 years. We have large group dinners and thoroughly enjoy their happy hour selections. The Mac N Cheese is a group favorite as is the Jambalaya. The Hurricane at Bourbons is far better than some I've had in NOLA. The service is also great, especially Albert, he is our favorite. Definitely our favorite group hang out spot in NYC.

    The restaurant was nearly empty and the servers were falling all over themselves, yet it took over 1 hour to serve two persons salad and veggie burgers; just water. Cost was cheap but the veggie burger was made in-house and a better version could have been purchased. It was good. Also , no substitutions? Beef burgers had French fries but we got some mess of a "slaw" with black beans, celery and too much mayo and no seasoning. The bourbon glazed onions were less than one teaspoon and no pickles. This is no Cajun restaurant. I do not think they know their genre.

    The restaurant wasn't bad. The food was fine, but not for the price, and the presentation was lacking. We liked our waiter, who was very accommodating that we had a show to get to. The fried pickles were in a small glass jar and were mostly breading. Anyone with knowledge of fried food knows not to pile them up and confine them. The mozzarella logs looked like they were right out of the frozen section of the supermarket. The number of fried pickles were few because they made them, whereas they gave us a good number of the crummy mozzarella sticks. The entrée was heaped on a plate without regard for presentation, and the dessert was ok. My wife's friend enjoyed her entrée, but that was the only good one of the bunch.
